After weeks of scrutiny and negative press about whether or not her Presidential Inauguration National Anthem performance was live, a confident Beyonce decided to throw a little “shade” at the Pepsi Super Bowl Press Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana on Thursday (January 31st).
She came out in a fitted white dress and starting singing the National Anthem live in front of a crowd of shocked press. After she was done she asked, “Any Questions?” And of course there were.
ON WHETHER OR NOT SHE USED A BACKING TRACK DURING THE INAUGURATION:
Due to the weather, due to the delay, due to no proper sound-check, I did not feel comfortable taking a risk. It was about the President and the Inauguration and I wanted to make him and my country proud. So I decided to sing along with my pre-recorded track. Which is very common in the music industry. And I’m very proud of my performance.
ON IF SHE WILL BE SINGING LIVE AT THE SUPER BOWL:
I will absolutely be singing live. I am well-rehearsed & I will be singing live. This is what I was born to do.
WILL SHE BE GOING ON TOUR?
I may have an announcement after the performance & the fans should just stay tuned to see.
Make sure you tune in on Sunday, February 3rd for Beyonce’s Half-Time Performance. With that said, view video of the press conference below:
